New details have emerged in regards to his departure. He wanted to attend the WWE HOF Ceremony and the company didn’t inform him whether or not he was booked for a show until 2 weeks prior. Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer had this to say on the situation:

”(Smith) wanted to go to the WWE Hall of Fame because they were inducting Jim Neidhart, who is part of his family, as well as Bret Hart a second time. New Japan was running MSG and he kept asking whether he’s booked on the show so he could make plans either to do the Hall of Fame or not.”
